Portrait of Dr. Albert F. Woods Presented 

To University At Alumni Reunion June 4 

At the annual alumni luncheon, 
June 1, an oil-painted portrait of 
former president Dr. Albert F. Woods 
was presented to the University 
by John Myers, of Westminster, 
.Maryland, the artist. Dr. IL J. Pat- 

on, dean of the College of Agri- 
culture, and one who has done much 
toward the development of the in- 
stitution since the early nineties, made 
the presentation address in behalf of 
the artist. -Miss Eleanor Myers, twin 
sister of the artist, unveiled the por- 
trait. John Myers is a graduate of 
the Maryland Institute of Art of Bal- 
timore and while only 21 years old 
has gained noteworthy distinction. 
His paintings won for him a scholar- 

Dr. Albert F. Woods 

-hip to Study abroad. He is the son 
Of Dr. and Mrs. J. Edgar Myers, of 
Westminster, Maryland. 

Mr. Patterson in his remarks spoke 
oJ Dr. Woods as one "who came from 
a line of ancestors who were empire 
and character builders. He got his 
inspiration not only from an excep- 
tionally high type of parents and the 
environment of the great Middle 

but al-o from one of America's 

great science teachers in one of our 
great universities in the State of 
Nebraska. He is endowed with the 
faculty of inspiring others to unsel- 

Hon. S. M. Shoemaker, chairman 
of the Hoard of Regents, accepted the 
iii m behalf of the University. 
The following are his remarks: 

"I believe it is my privilege to ac- 
cept this Bplendid portrait, and I 

can'l help wondering if our young 

friend. Mr. John Myers, real- 
ized hov. well he was treating him- 
self, a- well University of 

nnd, when hi I the suh- 

thifl portrait. The subject 

ablished his reputation 

before he came to Maryland. I re- 
call Dr. Welch, himself, reprimanding 
us for our willingness to make an 
executive of a man who had shown 
such marked ability in the research 

"This Land-Grant College of a few 
years back is now a very important 
part of a full-fledged State Univer- 
sity. And it is certainly due to Dr. 
Woods and his sterling qualities more 
than to any other man or men that 
this was accomplished. I only wish 
I could properly express the appre- 
ciation of the University and our 
gratitude to this young artist for 
presenting us with this splendid por- 
trait of Dr. Albert F. Woods." 

Dr. Woods, in responding to the 
honor, concluded by saying: 

"You honor me as uie rirst one to 
hang here. I am proud to be the first 
one on this campus. There are some 
fine old pictures on the other campus, 
(Baltimore). I want you to remember 
the men who have .vorked for more 
than a century to build this institu- 
tion, here and at the other end — men 
who have done much more than I had 
ever hoped to do to lay the founda- 
tions for a great university. Most 
of them have gone, except in remem- 
brance. Some of them are here. My 
dear friends, they should hang along 
with me, 'the best is yet to be, the 
last for which the first was made' — 

with apologies to Browning." 

Track Star Weds 

Charles Fouts, star track athlete 
for several years, and Miss May 
Dezendorf, both graduates of this 
year, were married June 5, at the 
Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority House, of 
which sorority the bride is a member. 
Fouts, a member of the Sigma Phi 
Signri Fraternity, gained noteworthy 
distinction in pole-vaulting this past 
season by shattering the Old Line 
record in the dual meet with the 
United States Naval Academy by 
jumping twelve feet, one inch, which 
also was first place in the meet. 

The newlyweds will reside in New- 
ark, N. J., following their honevmoon 
to Ocean City, Md.

ole support of the association. 

The Association made two early 
calls upon its members for dues for 
the \ear '32-'33 and the treasurer, 
Dr. t. B. Symons, '02, reports that 
a splendid return has been recorded, 
as you will notice by the accompany- 
ing names. It is, however, necessary 
that the generous response continue 
if the association is to carry out its 
extensive program for rendering as- 
sistance to students, alumni, and the 

The names published in this issue 
are those who sent in their dues 
prior to July 16; those received since 
then will appear in the next issue. 
The NEWS will continue to publish 
each month the names of alumni who 
have paid dues in the association. 

By a review of the following list, 
your attention is called to the fact 
that the classes of '75 and '80 are 
the leaders, with 100', paid-up mem-

tackles; Jerome Feldman and Donald 
Hay, guards, and John Simpson, 
center, are the leading reserves left 
from last year, and none of them 
weighs above 175 pounds. 

Vaul Rouzer, a guard; Al Farrell, 
a tackle; Tom Webb, center, and John 
McDonald, an end, are the leading 
line prospects to come up from the 
1931 yearling squad. Both Rouzer 
and Farrell weigh more than 200 
pounds and are active with it. Webb 
will go above 175. 

Two Backs Who May Aid 
Pewee Walker, who was not eligible 
last fall, and George Hockensmith, 
who took "time out" last season, due 
to the exacting engineering course he 
is taking, are backs who also should 
prove of value. 

Several of the others on the 1931

men and backs, may develop into valu-

No changes are anticipated in 
Maryland's football coaching stall' 
this fall. 

('urley Byrd, of course, will direct 

the team's destinies and the char 
are that Charlie Fenwiek, his capable 
and popular chief aide, will be back 

Fenwiek has a difficult time in 
getting away from his business pur- 
suits in Washington, but he is so 
fond of football in general, and Mary- 
land in particular, that he makes the 
grade some way. 

Jack Faber will again be in charge 
of the freshmen gridders, with Al 
Heagy as his helper. 

Mike Stevens, who aided part of 
last season, also may possibly join in 
the work with the Old Line gridmen 
in some capacity. There is no cer- 
tainty about this, though.

V. P. 1. Grid Battle 
To Be Homecoming 

One Of Maryland's Oldest Rivals 

Will Be Met On October 8 

At College Park 

IT has been definitely decided to 
make the football game with Vir- 
ginia Poly on October 8 the 1932 
Homecoming contest. 

For a time it was undecided whether 
to play the game at Norfolk or Col- 
lege Park, but in view of the make- 
up of the schedule the tilt with the 
Blacksburgers was found to be the 
most appropriate for the annual re- 
turn of the alumni. 

It will be the Old Liners' first hard 
game at home, Virginia being played 
at Charlottesville on October 1 after 
the opening battle with Washington 
College is staged in Byrd Stadium on 
September 24. 

Virginia Poly, one of Maryland's 
oldest rivals, will be the only Southern 
Conference team to visit College Park 
this fall, the other "home" clash with 
a Dixie organization foe being with 
bilt ir. Griffith Stadium in 
Washington on November 5. 

However, it was thought more fit- 
ting to have Homecoming day with a 
game that actually will be staged on 
the campus. 

inia Poly, with a changed coach- 
ing staff and a wealth of material, 
figures to have the best team it has 
boasted in many seasons, and confi- 
dently expects to halt Maryland's 
winning streak over the Gobblers that 
has given the Old Liners three wins 
in a row. 

Maryland has played Virginia Poly 
annually in football since 1919 and had 
a game with the Blacksburgers as 
far back as ] 

Details for the occasion will be sent 
old grads through the athletic office 
in due time and it is planned to have 
the next issue of the Alumni N< 
out well in advance of the Homecom- 
ing contest to give the "low down" 
on the event. 

However, it would be well for the 
alumni to bear the date in mind and 
make their plans early to be at ' 
lege Park on October 8.

Man Of Industry 


Edmund Cooper Mayo, '04, a grad- 
uate of mechanical engineering from 
cue LrOiiege i an\ ot-uuois ox tnc uni-

He has progressed rapidly from the 
time he received his diploma and went 
to work as a machinist in the New-

and general manager of the Gorham

the largest maker of sterling silver- 
ware and, through its control of sub-

holds that the human element is the 
most important in management.

Following his graduation from the

and a half later he opened his own

your machines. These are things that 
you can't purchase with money. Loy- 
alty and efficiency are by-product 
mental attitude, and the only coin that 
will buy them is justice from the exec- 
utives and supervisors who deal with 
your people. 

"Justice doesn't mean being soft. 
You can be firm, almost harsh — if you 
are fair. But your people will re- 
spond to fair treatment. They will 
do almost anything for a man who 
treats them fairly. And they will do 
no more than they absolutely have to 
for the man who isn't square." 

Establishes Own Business 
Three years after graduation, with 
some associates, he purchased a busi- 
ness and named it Mayo Iron Works, 
Inc. Since then he has been general 
manager, vice-president, and president 
of various manufacturing- companies 
that have produced marine engines, 
fire alarms, locomotives, brass car- 
tridge cases, steel hats, or sterling 
silver. And he has not only made 
good but left a trail of superior in- 
dustrial management which is true 
evidence of his thesis that human na- 
ture is most important in business. 

He believes that the greatest re- 
sponsibility of any executive is the 
training of younger men. He has 
personally trained several young men 
in his organization who are good ex- 
amples of his ideas as to how r young 
men should be trained to carry on the 
work of his company. And it is sig- 
nificant that when a man has been 
trained by him, he just naturally 
gravitates into the manufacturing- end 
of the business. 

Playing Golf 

One of the most important requi- 
sites of management, he claims, is 
that "the chief executive personally 
know the characteristics of his key 
men." He takes plenty of time keep- 
ing- himself acquainted with the plant 
men and the plant. He makes per- 
sonal tours daily through his plant and 
corrects things he has noticed through 
his works managers. 

In spite of his executive tasks he 
finds time to indulge in favorite sports 
and pastimes. He is a lover of horses, 
having been born and raised in the 
South. He also plays golf. Man; 
his assistants do. also, but he enforces 
a rule that anybody in the Gorham 
anization who consistently breaks 
'.Mi lias to give up golf. The reason 
is typically Mayo. "When a man gets 
that good at it we can't let him keep 
it up. For then it takes too much 
of his time for playing- and too much 
time for telling about it."

for this purpose. 

One half-hour following the game 
the University dining-hall will have 
available a private dining-room for the 
use of returning; students and their 
friends when they may go and have 
dinner. Here all facilities for both 
men and women are available. 

The annual Homecoming Dance will 
be held in the University Gymnasium, 
beginning at 9:00 P.M. A well-known 
orchestra will provide the music. Mid-

Schrider, '25, Commended 

Peter Paul Schrider, '25, a pilot in 
the United States Marine Flying 
Corps, was specially commended by 
the Board of Awards at the Navy De- 
partment for the part he played in 
battling- irregulars in Nicaragua. 

Pete, as he is better known, was a 
port-side baseball twirler of no little 
note. He entered the Marine Corps 
a year after graduation, in 1926. Re- 
cently he married Miss Mary Inez 
Mann, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arlie

Grid Squad Toiling 
for Hard Campaign 

Football practice for the tough 1 1- 
game schedule thai Maryland will play 
this fall is underway at College Park 
and there is a lot of work to be done 
to turn out an eleven that can cope 
creditably with the strenuous opp 

Alumni must not expeel to Bee a 
machine like that of last fall, but they 
can count upon the old Liners, as they 
always do, to play interesting I 
ball. It is not necessary to Bay that 
the best is sure to be got out of the 
material at hand. Maryland doesn't 
have a hand-picked grid squad, but it 
always has a line hunch of fellows 
and an eleven that enjoys the respect 
of all its rivals. 

Losses Are Heavy 

Maryland's task was made difficult 
by the graduation of eight of the 1931 
regulars and was made harder by the 
decision of Tom Duley and Jerome 
Feklman, two of the leading line re- 
serves of last season, not to return. 
Duley has a position and Feldman will 
enter medical school. 

Charles Keenan, tackle, and Ray 
Poppelman and Al Woods, backs, are 
the three regulars remaining. 

While there are 17 in the list of 
those invited to try for the team, very 
few of the aspirants have had any 
experience to speak of, many of them 
coming to Maryland without having 
played in high school. 

Then, too, despite the fact that Val 
Rouzer and Al Farrell, two recruits 
from the 1931 freshman team, tip the 
scales at L':;.~> and 218 pounds, respec- 
tively, there are comparatively few 
men of real weight on the squad, the 
47 invited back averaging well under 
170 pounds to the man. 

Problems In Backfield 
•ite the presence of Poppelman 
and Woods in the backfield there are 

many problems to solve in this depart- 
ment. There is no pa 
ability and no pass snatcher of B 
ger's skill in evidence and both of 
thesi .new a lot about del".

Colonel John Skinner, 

Medical Alumnus, Dies 

Lieut. Col. John Oscar Skinner, '87, 
Army Medical Corps, retired and 
former superintendent of Columbia 
Hospital, died September 12. 1932, at 
Saint Elizabeth Hospital in Washing- 
ton, after a long illness. 

He was born in Baltimore. .May 4, 
1845, and was a veteran of the Indian 
Wars. He attended the Sorbonne in 
Paris, took special courses at the Uni- 
versity of Wurzburg, Germany; Uni- 
versity of Vienna, Austria, and was a 
graduate of the Universities of Penn- 
sylvania and Maryland. 

He took part in many Indian Wars, 
and was presented the Congressional 
.Medal of Honor in 1015 by President 
Wilson for services in the Modoc In- 
dian War. He was superintendent of 
Columbia Hospital for 15 years before 
taking command of the United States 
ly Dispensary here during the 
World War. 

He was a lineal descendant of Lieut. 
Col. John Jones, who sat at the court 
martial of Aaron Purr. He was a 
member of the Order of Indian Wars, 
<iril. abao, American Legion, 

Optimist Cluli. and the National Press 

Interment was made in the Arling- 
ton National Cemetery. 

Many Old Grads Watch 

Scrimmage With Marines 

When the varsity football squad 
mmaged the Marines two weeks 
ago, it seemed something like a Home- 
coming by the number of old grads 
who turned out to see the boys per- 
form. It was evidence of the amount 
of interest and enthusiasm the old 
«rads have for the favorite collegiate 

Dr. John F. Moore, '23, better 
known as Piggy and an outstanding 
guard in his day; John Robinson, '24, 
a former track star as a half-miler; 
Kirkland Besley, '24, a former pigskin 
toter and director general of the team; 
John Reisinger, '24, now practicing 
law in Washington, D. C; J. Edward 
Burroughs, '23, an attorney-at-law in 
Washington; Burton Middleton, '17; 
Don Adams, '28, an outstanding tackle 
in his day; Mike Stevens, '27, one of 
the cleverest-running backs ever to 
step on the barred field; Knocky 
Thomas, '28, a great half-back and 
also a member of the greatest relay 
team Maryland ever had; Diddle Hei- 
delbach, '24, a former lacrosse star; 
Bill Ward, '16, a former lineman, and 
many other old grads, were on the 
side lines watching the first test of the 
really new team. It is actually a 
new team as eight regular men 
graduated last year. However, the 
old grads seemed somewhat optimistic 
about the prospects for the coming 
campaign. There was some good 
blocking, hard tackling, clever run- 
ning, and forward-pass catching, that 
always makes the eyes of the old boys 
twinkle with gladness. 

The same Curley Byrd in his famil- 
iar coaching togs and usual habit 
(pulling grass, etc.) was right behind 
his charges, correcting their errors. 
Once Curley said to one of his assis- 
tants, "Gee, don't bother them with 
too many corrections when they are 
going good." It looks like the re- 
turning grad will see plenty of thrill- 
ing action when the Old Liners and 
Gobblers clash in the feature of Home- 
coming Day. 

Alumni To Get Together 

Following Md.-Duke Game 

Following the Maryland-Duke foot- 
ball game at Durham, N. C, the Uni- 
versity of Maryland alumni residing 
in North Carolina and the South will 
have an informal dinner "get-togeth- 
er," at the Washington Duke Hotel in 
Durham. Prof. R. H. Ruffner, '08, 
president of the Southern Group, is

ner is for all Maryland alumni, their 
wives, sweethearts, and friends. The 
cost will he $1.00 per plate. No ad- 
vanced reservation deposit is required.

prominent University leaders and the 
remainder of the evening will be spent 
in a good social "get-together" among 
Maryland people. Please notify Pro-

However, that game will he history 
and the one with Virginia at Char- 
lottesville on October 1 may also have 
been played by the time this is read. 
But regard! vhat kind of a 

showing was made in these games, fol- 
lowers of the Old Liners may count 
upon an eleven that will display a 
Id of fight, much good football and 
a flashy attack when they visit Col- 
lege Park on October 8 for the Home- 
coming tilt with Virginia Poly. 
Line I> Bis Job 
Building a line is the main problem 
for the Byrd eleven, but Charlie Fen- 
wick, chief mentor of the forwards, is 
not at all discouraged, although his 
material is inexperienced, for he has 
some sizable aspirants who pack speed 
and grit. That is half the battle, in 
Fenwick's opinion. 

Maryland has the kind of combina- 
tion that will be greatly benefited by 
uple of games, and those with 
-hington College and Virginia 
should serve to advance the Old Lin- 
age where they will be 

Virginia Poly. 

Maryland has a backfield that con- 
tains plenty of scoring dynamite with 
Ray Poppelman. Al Woods. Paul Kier- 
nan, and Dick Nelson as the regular 
quartet, and Earl Widmyer, the 1931 
sprinting sensation of the East and 

kensmith, and Buckey Buschei 
the chief rest-:

Poppelman, Woods, Kiernan. and 
Imyer could form a relay team that 
.Id be hard to beat and anyone of 
them is likely to flash to a touchd 
at any time. In fact, Widmyer doubt- 
is the fastest man playing f 
ball in the country thi 

Maryland lost too many I 
— eight of its 11 regulars — to expect 
to be as goo :ceptional eleven 

of last year, but the Old Liners will 
present a scrappy lot who will be a 
pleasure to watch and who will pro- 
vide many a thrill.

fifth season at Maryland. He likes

chosen a member of the all-time All-

If past performances count for any- 
thing, and they are the only logical 
criterion, Virginia Poly and Maryland 

should provide a close, hard-fought 

game for the benefit of the old grads. 

In only two of their modern games : 
either team won by more than Hi 
points, and from 3 to 1-! have been 
the usua 

In all, 17 games have been played, 
four prior to 1919 in which the teams 
broke even, and 13 since the modern 
series began. V. P. I. has won seven 
of these last 13 contests, but the Old 
Liners have taken the last three and 
will strive to make it four in a row 
and get on an even basis for the entire 
stretch at nine all. 

However, Virginia Poly was cele- 
brating Homecoming last fall when 
the Old Liners scored their most de- 
cisive win over the Gobblers at Blacks-

THE largest gathering in the history 
of athletics attended the Home-

former students and friends practi- 
cally filled the seating capacity of the 
Byrd Stadium. 

The old grads began to arrive by 
10 A. M.. registering at the Ritchie 
Coliseum where they met many former 
schoolmates and lived again the old 
days. The Trophy Room was given

The club voted to establish one

the following stipulated qualifications: 

... for a male student chosen be- 
cause of his all around development, 
academic worthwhileness and ambition 
combined with lack of ability to pay 
fixed expenses for an education."

Maryland Painted By Carrington, r, 28 

AN Aerial View of the State of 
.Maryland, from an altitude of 
20,000 feet above the Mason and Dixon 
line, was painted by Ray Carrington, 
'28. The painting, the largest of its 
kind in the state, is 30 feet in length 
and 9 feet high. It was used in the 
State Canners' exhibit, sponsored by 
the University Extension Service, at 
the Maryland State Fair. 

Carrington has been studying art at 
the Corcoran School of Art in Wash- 
ington and is also a member of the 
Extension Service staff at the Uni- 
versity. His artistic ability received 
laudatory recognition in the House 
Beautiful cover-page picture contest. 
From 2,160 paintings submitted, only 
100 were chosen and Carrington's 
painting was among them. 

Alumni In North Carolina 

Get-together At Durham 

Following the Maryland-Duke foot- 
ball game at Durham, N. C, the Uni- 
versity alumni held a very enjoyable 
dinner and "get together" at the 
Washington-Duke Hotel. Some 50 or 
more alumni, their wives, sweethearts, 
and guests from all branches of the 
University were present for the occa- 

Dr. E. B. Howell, D.D.S., '08, M.D., 
'10, was toastmaster. The guest 
speaker of the evening was Dr. Alex. 
H. Paterson, one of the oldest mem- 
bers of the Dental School faculty. 
Others to make talks were Dr. Robert 
L. Felts, '98, an outstanding physician 
in Durham; Dr. L. B. Broughton, '08, 
a member of the Athletic Board of 
the University; Professor R. F. Ruff- 
ner, '08, chairman of the Southern 
group and the one who organized the 
"get together," and G. F. Pollock, as- 
sistant secretary of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation. Each alumnus present was 
called upon to give his name, class, 
and present address. 

Following the speaking, Mr. Mac- 
Donald, a real estate man from Ra- 
leigh, N. C, and a comedian, gave a 
humorous demonstration of the human 
spine using a banana stalk, stripped 
of its fruit, for the illustration. The 
sketch was a real treat. 

Among the alumni present was one 
of Marvlander's pioneer athletes, in 
the person of Dr. N. M. Gibbs, '90, 
bain of the football team of the 
Baltimore School in '9G, and coach

Triumph Over \;i\ j 

Old Lino Objective 

. from I'u 

Being compelled to give a certain 
time to the developing of a team, for 
the most part made up of sophomores 
and others of no great experience, 
Byrd has focused his efforts on having 
a well-geared combination on the field 
when the Midshipmen are met. In 
other words, he is pointing his Old 
Liners for the game with the Sailors. 

The last two tilts between the Mid- 
dies and the Old Liners have been 

TL€ Navy won 
1930 contest by a G to score, played 
before a capacity crowd at Annapolis, 
a 90-yard run for a touchdown by 
Bullet Kirn in the first minute of the 
battle deciding the issue. 

Last year, in Griffith Stadium in 
Washington, the Old Liners won by 
the same count, a sensational forward 
pass, after a triple pass, from Shorty 
Chalmers to Al Pease bringing the 
lone counter. 

Both Possess Power 

While both Xavy and Maryland had 
their difficulties in their October 
games, both squads contain much la- 
tent power and both should be develop- 
ed to a point where they should play 
about as good football on November 
12 as they will show this season. In 
the last game before this was written 
Xavy went up to Princeton and out- 
classed the Tigers, although the best 
that the Middies could get was a score- 
less tie. Maryland, on the same day, 
came out of the doldrums by defeating 
St. John's, 24 to 7, and indicating that 
the team had reached a point where it 
was about to snap into a status that 
comes to a green squad only after it 
has been through a siege of games.

Old Liners' Record 
In State Is Clean 

St. John's Second Within Border- To 

Be Beaten Three Others Art- 
still On Schedule 

Although Maryland won only two 
is first live football games, it has 
a clean slate as far as State teams arc 
concerned. Washington College 
outclassed in the opening contest, 
to 0. and on October 22 St, I hn'f was 
disposed of, 24 to 7. 

The meeting between the Old Liners 
and the Johnnies was the fust since 
1930 and the 29th gridiron contest be- 
tween the two since they began their 
rivalry back in 1892. The victory 
gave Maryland the edge in the long 
series as the old foes went into the 
game with a record of 13 wins apiece 
and two ties. 

St. John's Scrappy 

.Maryland's victory, although the 
Johnnies, under Todie Riggs, former 
Old Line athlete, put up a fighting 
game, was rather more one-sided than 
the score would indicate. Maryland 
got two quick touchdowns in the first 
period and then let up. It did the 
same thing in the third quarter after 
twice crossing the goal. When the 
.Maryland attack put on pressure it 
appeared to have a lot of potency. 

Maryland's other games with teams 
within the State, however, are certain 
to be more difficult. Xavy, Johns Hop- 
kins, and Western Maryland, are to be 
met in order on November 1-, Thanks- 
giving Day, and December 3, all in the 
Baltimore stadium. 

Navy and Hopkins are dealt with 
elsewhere, but it would not be amiss 
to mention here that Western Mary- 
land is building its whole campaign 
with the object of getting revenge for 
the 41 to 7 shiner the Old Liners hung 
on the Terrors last season. 

Western Maryland's best effort in 
1932 up to the time this was written 
was a surprising 1.! to 6 victory over 
Georgetown in Washington on Octo- 
ber 21.

.Maryland, 1S!»2. However, it is 

ded that a sophomore named Bob 
litzell brought football to the campus 

two yean before. This was in 1890, 
hut a regular schedule was not played 

until 1892. Dr. W. W. Skinner. 

now a member of the Board of Re-

article. At 12 noon, luncheon was 
served in the Ritchie Coliseum after 
which the Annual "M" Cluh meeting 
was held in the Trophy Room, J. 31.

The feature of the day, the football 
game between Maryland and V. P. I., 
began at 2.30 P. M., in Byrd Stadium. 
.Maryland's fleetest half hack, Earl 
Widmyer, was knocked out in the 
ond play and Maryland's speed 
threat was gone. 

Distinguished alumni were among 
the ardent looters in the persons of

of the Alumni Association; Hon. W. P.

Circling The Globe

The editor of the Alumni News has 
asked me to appear before our readers 
in the role of an adventurer. I have 
hesitated long to do this thing, for 
one is so apt to be initiated into the 
Ananias Club by a critical public, 
and particularly in this case, by some 
of those "worthies" who sat under 
the shade of the trees on College Hill 
back in the early part of the first 
of this present century.

Only Eight On Football 

Squad Will Be Graduated 

Unless there are scholastic casual- 
ties, and there are sure to be a num- 
ber of them, Maryland will have 21 
of the 29 men from the Varsity foot- 
ball squad and 28 recruits from a 
fairly capable freshman aggregation 
to depend upon next. However, out 
of this total of 49, the chances are 
that 40, at the most, will be on hand 
by the time the next grid campaign 
rolls around. 

Maryland will lose by graduation: 
Wood, end; Keenan and Cole, tackles; 
Mitchell, guard; and Poppelman, 
Woods, Kiernan, and Stieber, backs. 
Mitchell, Woods, and Poppleman were 
regulars this fall, Keenan and Cole 
shared the right-tackle job, Kiernan 
divided the right-halfback duties with 
Widmyer, but Stieber saw very little 

Benner, Hines, Vincent, DeVeau, 
Hay, and Rittenhouse, ends; Farrell, 
McCaw, Mattehke, and Silber, tackles; 
Rouzer, MacDonald, and Simpson, 
guards; Webb and Goldman, centers, 
and Nelson, Widmyer, Sothoron, 
Buscher, Widmyer, and Crecca, backs, 
are the others due to be back next 

Webb, Rouzer, Nelson, and Benner 
were regulars, Widmyer was in prac- 
1 ically every game at some stage.

Gridiron Campaign

Missing ( In Virginia Contest 

Prevents Even Break. Season 

Results *s Expected 

Maryland's Varsity football team, 
in the throes of rebuilding 1 , lost six 
ts 11 games during the campaign 
just ended. In the games it lost, ex- 
nia by one point, Mary- 
land simply was up against much 
better and more experienced material. 
This was especially true in the panics 
with Vanderbilt, Puke, and Western 

With only one regular in the line 
ami two in the backfield left from 
1 around whom to build, Curley 
Byrd never could find a line combina- 
tion that came near matching the for- 
wards of his major rivals. This was es- 
pecially true of the ends. Not one 
of the seven men used on the wings 
at various times during the campaign 
was a high-class performer. Willis 
Benner, a junior, was the leader of the 
bunch, but even he did not plav regu- 

Fatal First Half 

However. Maryland played really 
bad football only in the Navy game 
and in the first half of the finale with 
Western Maryland, after helping 
Western Maryland to 39 points in 
first 30 minutes, the Old Liners set- 
tled down and outplayed the Terrors 
in the last half by a wide margin, 
;ng the only 7 points during that 
time and seriously threatening on 
two other occasions. 

Maryland's season came out just 
about as those in charge figured it 
might. Victories were scored as pres- 
aged, defeats came where expected, 
and it was believed that the game 
with Virginia was a toss-up. The Old 
Liners outplayed the Cavaliers and 
then lost a tie by failure to add the 
extra point after touchdown.

Shipley Faces Job 
With Varsity Quint 

Has One Regular, Three Letter-Men 

On Squad. Satellites Los! 

From 1931-32 Team 

With Buckey Buscher the only reg- 
ular left from the 1931-32 season, 
Cn.-u-h Burton Shipley, of the basket 
ball squad, faces about the same diffi- 
culties as Curley Byrd had to battle 
with during the gridiron campaign 
just closed. And Shipley's team 

plays a tough 19-game schedule. 
Rufus Vincent, center, and Spi 
Chase, forward, two tall tossers along 

with Buscher, also won their letters 
last season, and it is around tl 
three that Shipley will have to build 
his quint. 

Bob Snyder, reserve guard a year 
ago, and Roy Yowell and Warren 
Evans, from last year's freshman 
team, appear to be the best of the 
others. George Weber, a senior out 
for the first time, and George Walker, 
ineligible last season, also should 
prove of value. 

But a team that loses such stars 
as Bozie Berger, twice All-American 
guard; Ed Ronkin, All-Southern two 
years ago; Shorty Chalmers, Charlie 
May, Bob Wilson, and Frenchy Cohen, 
all letter-men, certainly is dealt a 
blow from which it is practically im- 
possible to recover, at least in one 

Maryland will have a battling team 
that will play interesting basket-ball, 
but it cannot be expected to measure 
up to Shipley's record of 72 ^ vic- 
tories in 151 games in nine years. 
Only twice — once 4 to 6, in his first 
year, in 1924, and, 7 to 8, in 1929, did 
Shipley's charges finish on the short 
end. In other seasons they have been 
on the long end, all excepting once, 

by a heaw margin.

Pouleur, (l"), Visits Campus 

While On Sabbatic Leave 

A. L. Pouleur, '06, visited the cam- 
pus October 1. while motoring to the 
Pacific coast on Babbatical leave. He 
was traveling in a Fiat car of 1915 
vintage thai attracted attention by 
its high wheels. This is the first 
time Professor Pouleur lias visited 
the campus since his student days. 

He was very much pleased and sur- 
prised at the many changes that have 

taken place on the campus. 

Since leaving .Maryland he has re- 
ceived a degree from Harvard Univer- 
sity, taught at the Universities of 
Iowa. Buffalo, -Maine, Tufts College, 
and is now head of the chemistry de- 
partment of Wheaton College, where 
he has been since 1918. 

Professor Pouleur recently pre- 
sented the chemical department of 
the University with a complete set 
of atomic structure models, in recog- 
nition of the inspiration received 
from Dr. II. B. McDonnell, his first 
teacher in chemistry. Dr. McDonnell, 
professor of agricultural chemistry, 
has been a part of the University 
since the early nineties. Professor 
Pouleur, a citizen of Massachusetts, 
attributes his coming to Maryland to 
the enthusiastic talk of W. W. Cobey, 
'01, who, following: his graduation, 
was employed in that state. 

Alumni Groups Plan 

For Get-Togethers 

{Continued from Page 1) 

sections who are anxious to become 
organized, were talked with. 

Fred B. Rakeman, '18, of New 
York, was on hand and said plans 
are progressing for a good get-to- 
gether of Maryland alumni located 
in and near New York City. In fact 
several informal meetings of the ex- 
ecutive committee have already been 
held. J. P. Mudd, '07, secretary-trea- 
surer of the Philadelphia group, one 
of the most active groups of the asso- 
ciation is planning several meetings 

for the coming winter. This group 
usually has at least two, and maybe 
three, get-togethers during the sea- 

Homer Remsberg, '18, president of 
the Frederick group, reports that a 
get-together of his group looks more 
favorable this year than it did last 
;. ear. 

\V. A. S. Somerville, '08, from the 
Cumberland group, said that Brooke 
Whiting, president of the group, was 
making plans tor their usual pretentious 
banquet and dance. This group and 
the Old Liners of Washington, under 
the leadership of Wellstood White, 
'05, share leading honors for having 
the most outstanding get-togethers. 

Di. A. A. Parker and Dr. Frank B. 
Hines, of the Eastern Shore, discussed 
plans for organizing the alumni on 
the Shore. Henry Hoizapfel, Jr., '93, 
L. G. Mathias, '23, and Eddie Semler, 
'22, all of Hagerstown, discussed with 
interest and enthusiasm the organiza- 
tion of Washington County. 

The alumni officers hope to have 
a most favorable report, regarding 
get-togethers, at the annual meeting 
next June.

guished Service Cross for his meri- 
ious service during the intense 
bombardment by the Germans pre- 
ceding their drive of July 15th. Dur- 
ing this drive he gave up his dugout 
for the care of wounded; then led his 
command across the Marne, and di- 
rected the reduction of several ma- 
chine-gun nests, as well as advancing 
four kilometers in spite of determined 
resistance. Prior to coming to Wash- 
ington he was in the military depart- 
ment at North Carolina State College, 
Raleigh, N. C. 

When at Maryland Silvester was 
an outstanding athlete as well as a 
student, being valedictorian of his 
class. He is now living at 3907 Har- 
rison Street, Chevy Chase, D. C.

now and again — the Adventurer would 
be my lot. A University graduate 
(not Maryland, I am glad to say) 
said to me some days ago, "Are you 
a missionary?" I replied with much 
pride, "I am." And he continued with 
this, "Now just what is a mission- 
ary?" After catching my breath, I 
gave him a brief answer. I am as- 
suming, when I say that I have been 
an educational missionary under the 
Methodist Episcopal Church in British 
Malaya for 18 years, Maryland grad- 
uates will have no difficulty in rough- 
ly picturing both the geographical 
position and the purpose of that 

The Beginning 

The first circuit began November 
5, 1913, from Mitchellville to New 
York; from there, on the ill-fated 
Lusitania (not her last voyage), to 
Fishguard, West Coast of England. 
Then London, Gibraltar, Marseilles, 
Port Said, Suez, Aden, Colombo, Pen- 
ang, Singapore, 180° from Washing- 
ton, where I stopped for five years 
in the "Wonderland of the Far East" 
— British Malaya. Then Hongkong, 
Shanghai, Nagasaki, Yokohama, Hon- 
olulu, 'Frisco, Ogden, Salt Lake City, 
Denver, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Balti- 
more, and finally back to Mitchell- 
ville, May 29, 1919. As I record this 
list, what memories arise! London — 
confidence men; Port Said — flies; Na- 
gasaki — neuralgia and coal; Honolulu 
— liquid sunshine; 'Frisco — blow-gun 
and trunks.

When the World Skips a Day 

I shall endeavor to set down from 
pages of a diary and from leaves of 
memory, in this column, some of my 
experiences. They have not been set 
dov. Some things that tran- 

spired in my wanderings would inter- 
est only my immediate family circle, 
some would be read attentively by a 
churchman, but I propose to set down 
here for the AluMxNI News that which 
I believe will be of interest to all. 
They may not be chronological, that 
matters but little. I shall be con- 
cerned with accuracy. So here we go. 

The International Date Line is a 
funny thing. It just is, and it isn't. 
When you travel from Nagasaki to 
Honolulu, which is East, you come to 
a place on the sea near Bird Island, 
some two days journey from Hawaii, 
where a day just sinks out of exist- 
ence. You go to bed, we will say 
March 10, Tuesday, and wake up after 
perhaps eight hours, according to your 
watch under the pillow, and see on the 
bulletin board and all over the ship, 
Thursday, March 12th! Where is 
March 11th? Why, it just isn't. Some 
poor traveler who loves to be remem- 
bered on his birthday comes to the 
captain and with anxious face asks, 
"Why, captain, what am I to do, 
March 11 is my birthday?" The skip- 
per smiles one of those salt smiles and 
says, "Well, I am sorry, but you can't 
have a birthday this year." Then 
suppose the poor fellow happened to 
be going the other way, West, just at 
that time, and that is perfectly pos- 
sible^ — he would have to celebrate two 
whole days running, or 48 hours, for 
March 11 would be recorded twice. 
That week would have eight days. 
Where did the extra day come from? 
Your watch would tick just 24 hours 
in these two days. Forty-eight hours 
equals 24 hours. Q. E. D., I knew that 
I would qualify for membership in the 
above named club even before the first 
pen full of ink ran out, but there you 

I will start the adventures next'time

fall it will be played at Homewood 
Field and Byrd Stadium in alternate 

There is some chance too, that the 
Maryland-Western Maryland tilt, 
listed for October 2S next fall, will be 
played on the Homewood gridiron,

crowds of the size that patronize the

Boxing Is Coming 
In For Attention 

Lieut. Harmony, New Coach, Popular 

And Capable, So Formidable 

Team Is Expected 

Much interest centers in the Varsity 
boxing team this year with Lt. John 
W. (Jazz) Harmony coaching the 
squad for the first year. He not only 
appears to "know his onions" but is 
extremely popular with the boys. So 
a capable team is anticipated. 

Harmony appears to be well fixed in 
all of the classes except the light- 
heavy division in which he is striving 
to develop John Simpson, the football 
guard. All of the men up to this 
weight had been out for six weeks or 
more prior to the holidays. Simpson 
had only a few days of ring schooling 
before tl. 

nony has had plenty of time to 

ixers in the five 

classes ranging from the 115 to the 

160 pound, inclusive, and he has the 

tta Atlantic A. A. U. heavyweight 

champion in Al Farrell, the 204-pound 

ball tackle.

Basket-ball Team 
To Develop Power 

Should Be Hard To Defeat After It 

Gets Needed Experience i<> 
Invade Baltimore 

Coach Burton Shipley's basketers, 
defeated by Wisconsin -2 to 13, in 
their opening game of tl n in 

Ritchie Coliseum on December 22, 
were to resume their home competi- 
tion by playing Duke on January 1_\ 
However, In the meantime the Old 
Liners were to take B trip to Blacks- 
burg on January 7 to oppose V. P. I. 

Baltimoreans will get a chance m 
see the Old Liners in action in the 
.Monumental City on January 18, when 
Hopkins will be met in the Loyola 
g} m at Evergreen. Both the Mary- 
land Varsity and Freshman teams 
will appear that night. 

Shipley's charges, after a bad first 
half in which their poor passing 
wrecked opportunities to get off in 
front of Wisconsin, came back strong 
in the last 2U minutes and shaded the 
Badgers generally. 

Aided by the Old Liners wild heaves, 
the Badgers got a 14 to 2 lead in the 
opening half, but overcoming their 
wiluness and playing a bang-up de- 
fensive game, the Terps outscored the 
Midwesterners 11 to a in the closing 
period. The Old Liners will be haru 
to beat after they get two or three 
more games under their belts. 

Shipley started Roy Yowell and 
Spencer Chase, forwards; Rut us Vin- 
cent, center, and Bob Snyder and 
bucKy Buscher, guards. They played 
most of the game, Fred Stieber ami 
George Walker doing some reserve- 
duty. George Weber, Warren Evanc 
and Stewart McCaw, the other three 
on the Bquad, were not available the 
night of tbe game. Weber and Evans

Alumni Directory 

The Alumni Directory, in addition 
to the Memorial, received considerable 
discussion. Action taken was that the 
president and secretary-treasurer be 
appointed as a committee, with power 
to act, to confer with the university 
authorities upon a feasible plan for 
publishing the Directory. 

The Alumni Memorial was discussed 
at some length. Attractive plans pre- 
pared by Messrs. Carrington, '28, and 
Himmelheber, '23, were produced. Dur- 
ing the discussion Mr. Byrd explained 
the proposed enlargement of the ath- 
letic field, whereupon Sen. Tydin^s 
suggested that in this new improve- 
ment a suitable location should be 
selected for an appropriate memorial 
around which many traditions for this 
university could be built. A suggestion 
was made that Maj. Cutler, architect 
for the Coliseum and the proposed new 
stadium, be interviewed, his advice 
secured on this project, and a report 
to be made at the next meeting of the 

The nominating committee for offi- 
cers for '33-'34 were named as follows : 
Chairman, Maj. O. H. Saunders, '10; 
Miss Sarah Morris, '24; H. H. Balk- 
ham, '17; J. W. Chambers, '99; P. W.

Following the business session, Dr. 
Pearson made a few remarks on the 
relation of Alumni and students. He 
suggested "that alumni-student meet- 
ings be held at various places through- 
"iit the State during vacation periods, 
which would effect an opportunity for 
alumni and students to discuss those 
things of mutual interest."

An editorialist of the Baltimore Sun 
papers has gone out of his way to 
attack the University's Budget through 
"Curley Byrd." Whether or not these 
attacks are engendered by dislike for 
the University's progress, or have 
some other reason behind them, they 
are wholly unfair. To label "Curley" 
as a showman or as a fourth rate 
coach is enough to give a good idea of 
the status of all the comments made 
by the editorial writer in question. 

"Curley," a graduate in the class of 
'08, returned to College Park more 
than 20 years ago, not solely as an 
athletic coach, but as a teacher in 
English and History with coaching as 
a pari time job. Being gifted with an 
abundance of initiative and ingenuity, 
he has attained a prominent position 
in the University's administration. 
Records show that the University in 
the past 20 years has ascended to not 
only an eminent position in athletics, 
but has gained high prestige and in- 
fluence in the educational world. Much 
of this advancement can be attributed 
to the wisdom, forethought and leader- 
ship of "Curley" and the part he has 
taken in the administration of the 
University's program. 

Uumni, and people of t he state 
generally, well appreciate the pr 

the University and the 
tion it has attained and it is un- 
likely that they will be swayed in the 
n unfair attack upon the 
• ii and "Curley." It prob- 
ably is unnecessary to defend either 
the ■ "Curley," but

Circling The Globe 

By Preston L. Peach, '03 


When you want to use your port- 
hole as a waste basket you need a 
high degree of decision of character. 
How many times have I stood before 
mine and wished that I had a "land" 
waste basket so if I made a mistake 
I could go outside and retrieve what I 
threw away. But what a blessing 
when you really want to get rid of 
something — a used razor-blade. 
The English 

An English friend of mine was 
traveling with me from London to 
Colombo. Now the Englishman likes 
to dress up at the evening dinner hour. 
He went to his cabin to read, the port- 
hole was closed, the air was stuffy 
so he opened it. In a little while an 
approaching storm allured him on 
deck. He forgot to close the port-hole. 
I think we were traveling along the 
southern end of the Adriatic Sea, 
where the sea gets rough very quick- 
ly. The dinner gong rang at six 
and he went down to dress. The size 
of his port-hole was 14 inches, the 
speed of the ship was 18 knots and 
the speed of the wave probably 18 
knots in the opposite direction. The 
signal had gone to the steward long 
before my friend left the deck; four 
cabin boys were bailing out his room 
and hanging up his evening suit to 
"cure." Now all well salted down. 
Yes, thei-e is a philosophy about the 
port-hole. Light and air are not the 
only parts of nature that enter. 

Saddest Happening 

The saddest thing I ever knew of, 
regarding this interesting part of a 
ship, was the following: A little 
family of father, mother and two 
brothers — five and three years old — 
were traveling by sea. They had a 
cabin well down in the ship w T ith an 
outside port-hole. It was open, father 
and mother were out and the two boys 
were playing on the floor. They saw 
the neat round hole above. The elder 
brother helped the younger one up 
on the berth to see what was out 
there. What a wonderful sight, the 
water rushing by, the beautiful birds 
(lying so close, the white soap-suds 
on the water. He must see more. 
Father and mother returned and found 
the elder brother alone. "Where is 
little brother?" He replied, "Oh" he 
went out that hole up there, and he 
has not come back yet!" 

Between these stories, the traveler 
some wonderful things from the 
port -hole. There is a philosophy as- 
sociated with this part of a ship. It 
is the most fascinating place in your 
cabin— that home on the sea. From 
it you receive light and air. Its thick. 
double plateglass cover will keep hack 

an angry sea. What safety and com- 
fort of mind is your's when you see 
a mighty wave dash with tons of force 
against it?

May Win Majority 

Sees Chance For Good Finish After 

Losing Eight of First 12 Games 

of Season 

Although the Maryland basket-ball 
team has won only four of its first 
12 games, with seven left to play, it 
is felt that the basketers have a fairly 
good chance to finish on the right 
side of the ledger. This means they 
must take six of seven games to turn 
the trick and the array of final foes 
include Washing' ng- 

ton and Lee, Virginia, V. If. I..

kins. All were slated at home.

were mentioned as outstanding in 
these sports in the Washington area 
in a yearly review published in the 
Sunday Star of December 25. 

Berger was all-American guard in 
basket-ball and Irene Kn >x won the 
national rifle championship and set

.Maryland's Pretty Co-ed 

Heard About In China 

When a well known news syndicate 
picked the four most beautiful co-eds 
in the United States to represent the 
North, East, South and Western sec- 
lions, they choose Miss Mary Stalling 
a sophomore in the College of Arts 
and Science of this University to rep- 
re -cut the Eastern institutions. 

Maryland itself knew it had beauti- 
ful women but did not know it was 
known the world over, but it is now. 
"Ed" Tenney, '28, now with an inter- 
nationally known oil company in 
China, sent a North China News Pa- 
per to a friend at the University, in 
which there was the picture of Miss 
Stalling as one of the four most 
beautiful co-eds in America. Natur- 
ally Ed read with much interest about 
the feminine pulchritude on the Uni- 
versity's campus. Too bad "Ed" you 
are so far away. 

Miss Stalling is a very pretty young 
lady; and a modest personality add 
much to her beauty. 

Professor R. C. Munkwitz 

Dies at Naval Hospital 

Professor Richard C. Munkwitz, who 
has been a professor in the Dairy De-

ture since 1925, died January 6, last, 
at the Naval Hospital in Washington, 
D. C. from complication of diseases 
resulting from his services in Russia 
in 1918 and 1919. He was a non-com- 
missioned officer with the 339th In- 
fantry in the Archangel Expedition 
during the World War. He was a 
member of the Masonic Order of Hy- 
attsville. Interment was made in 
the Arlington National Cemetery with 
Military Honors.

has been appointed editor of the 
American Journal of Science, succeed- 
ing Dr. Ernest Howe, deceased. Dr. 
Lull is a graduate of Rutgers, and 
Columbia University. 

Prior to his appointment, he was a 
member of the Yale University fac- 
ulty and one who is an authority on 
the ancient life of the Globe fossil 
organism. He also is the author of 
many hooks and a member of many

lias done in a masterly manner, which 
progress has proven. 

During the so-called Machine Age 
following the World War when prices 
were snaring high, the Baltimore 
Salesbook Company was consistently 
going along and holding to the first 
-ing its efficiency to help 
serve its many customers. Conse- 
quently the business of the company 
has increased 1,000 per cent in the 
last decade. 

A new development was bought out 
by the company last October which 
will add much to the efficiency of 
clerical departments of companies 
where many duplicates have to be 
written. It is a new duplicating meth- 
od which gives as high as 10 clear 
copies without the clerk ever touch- 
ing a piece of carbon, thus eliminating 
possibilities of copying errors. 

Speer is now president of the com- 
pany which has not only weathered 
the depression era, but has shown a 
gain in business each year. Its prog- 
ress and success is largely due to his 
efficient management. 

A Good Athlete 

Speer came to the College Park 
School of the University in 1915, and 
proved to be a great athlete as well 
as a good student. He was a member 
of probably one of the best relay 
teams ever produced at College Park. 
He was also a great halfback on the 
football team, as well as a runner. 
His gridiron performances gained for 
him exceptional prominence. 

His interest in athletics did not be- 
come dormant after leaving college. 
He is today taking an active interest 
in golf and has been very prominent 
in several tournaments held in Balti- 
more. Football has not lost its charm 
as he attends the games as often as 
business will permit. 

Speer's present address is: Presi-

Ezekiel, '18, Writes Book 

On Correlation Analysis 

Mordecai Ezekiel, '18, assistant 
economist of the Federal Farm Board 
is author of a most important book 
on the "Methods of Correlation Analy- 
sis." Mr. B. R. Buckingham of Har- 
vard University, in the Journal of 
Educational Research said; "An ex- 
cellent book, competently written and 
wholesome in its point of view. Por 
trays the methods of establishing sta- 
tistical relationship and the reviewer 
knows not where to go for so full and 
so sensible a treatment of the subject." 

A few years ago Ezekiel was awar- 
ded the Guggenhem Fellowship, which 
gave him an opportunity to study

Prospects in track, baseball, la-

two named, are bright at Maryland 
this Spring. 

With the exception of the field 
events. Coach Geary Eppley is pretty 
well satisfied with the track situation; 
Burton Shipley, the baseball mentor, 
has much good material, although he 
lost two great players in Bozie Berger 
and Shorty Chalmers; while Jack

Have Fine Seasons 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Lieut. John Harmony, new coach, 
rave Maryland the best boxing season 
it ever lias had. Starting with only 
one letter-man, he won three matches 

and tied a like number at 4-all. 

His leading boxers were Harold 
Burns, lightweight, unbeaten in the 
regular season; Bernie Keener, wel- 
ter; Lyman McAhoy and .Monte , Jones, 
who fought both in the 155 and 165- 
pound classes; Many Carroll, feather- 
weight; Stewart McCaw, light-heavy, 
and Al Farrell, heavyweight. Jim 
Young, Bsdras Graver and Earl Ed- 
wards, who shared the bantam duties, 
and Cliff Swift, lightweight, also did 
some fine work. 

Shipley will lose only Weber and 
Stieber by graduation and all Har- 
mony's pupils, except Keener and Gra- 
ver, are due back. 

Jack Faber, with two clever players 
in Fred Scheele, and Bernie Buscher, 
brother of Buckey, and two fair per- 
formers in Alton Rabbitt and Malcolm 
Johns, won 10 of 13 games with his 
yearling basketers. All four of these 
players should prove a help to the 
Varsity next Fall. 

Burns, Keener and Farrell did well 
in the Southern Conference boxing 
tourney. Burns went to the final, 
Farrell lost in the semi-final, and Keen- 
er went out in the first round. Each 
one of their conquerors became the 
champion in his class. 

Maryland went out in the first round 
of the Southern Conference basket- 
ball tourney, losing to the favored 
South Carolina quint that continued 
on to the championship. 

Mr. and Mrs. Craig Wilton, and 
their eighteen months old son are now 
■ ling- in Charlotte, N. C, at the 
Popular Apartments. Mrs Wilton was 
formerly Miss Charlotte Spenca of the 
dass of '23, and Mr. Wilton is a

Twenty Years Ago 

At this time just 20 years ago, the 
spring sports were getting under way. 
Baseball, being a favorite pastime 
was naturally the most prominent 
sport. The diamonders were lead by 
"Pete" Lednum, '14, a capable and 
scrappy infielder. Probably the main- 
stay of the nine was "Hoff" Hoffecker, 
'14, a most promising twirler. He up- 
held his reputation by holding the 
Navy team to two runs while his 
teammates collected three tallies. 
"Ship" Shipley and Country Morris 
were also prominent players of the 

The relay track team composed of 
Grace, P. Morris, Pennington, and Mon- 
tell, was successful in winning the 
State Championship. During the 
spring of '13, the annual M. A. C. 
Track and Field meet was held May 
3. It was regarded as the largest ever 
held in the South. 

The fourth season for lacrosse at 
Maryland showed that the sport was 
making great progress. Ed. Powell, 
'13, Captain and coach along with 
capable classmates, "Peck" Davis, '13, 
and "Sox" Trimble, '13, lead the team 
through a very good season. 

Powell was not only good with the 
lacrosse-stick but also the leader with 
a tennis-racket. Tennis was not rec- 
ognied as a college sport and competi- 
tion was mainly among the students. 

Brinton Darlington Edwards 

Out of the shadows of the past 
comes a name from the West coast. 
It is that of Brinton Darlington Ed- 
wards, formerly of Atlantic City, N. J., 
and a member of the class of '14, 
whose address has been unknown for 
many years. A coincident aided in 
the locating of his whereabouts. 

He is a photographer in Los Ange- 
les, California, where it is believed he 
has been living since the World War. 
He is a veteran having served with 
the 110th Infantry of the 28th Divi- 

Edwards married Miss Kathleen 
Sulton of California and they have one 
boy, Brinton, Jr. Their address is 
4112 Prospect Avnne, T<os Angeles.

Maryland Dental Students 

Win Ice Hockey Laurels 

When the Baltimore Amateur Ice 
Hockey League terminated its 1933 
season, the University of Maryland 
Dental School team was the season's 
champions. For many years the Uni- 
versity has been represented on the 
rink by a team which has brought 
prestige to the University as well 
as upheld the sportsmanship tradi- 

This year's team was composed of 
Dental School students who come from 
the Northern States and Canada, where 
they have had considerable experience 
playing the game. Their ability was 
proven by the fact that they were in 
competition with former captains and 
stars of Harvard, Yale, Princeton, 
Dartmouth and Army, including the 
notable Barry Wood of Harvard. 

Diggs Represents Maryland 

The leading teams in the league 
were Maryland and Green Spring 
Valley. The first round of the series 
was won by Green Spring Valley, 
which defeated Maryland in a tie 
play off. In the second round of the 
league Maryland won with an unde- 
feated record. Maryland and Green 
Spring then engaged in a champion- 
ship play off, which Maryland won. 

Maryland's representative on the 
board of directors of the league was 
none other than Austin C. Diggs, '21, 
the eminent cheer leader of yonder 

The last game of the season was 
played without a penalty, which is 
quite unusual and speaks very highly 
for the sportsmanship and ability of 
the players.

Maryland teams will play leading 
roles in the sports card at the Naval 

Academy on April 22, both the la- 
crosse and track squads visiting An- 
napolis for competition that day. 

Track fans in this section are await-

lar. That is the clash of Karl Wid- 
myer, Maryland's sophomore sprinter, 
and John Wavbright. the Navy's ace 
in the 100 and 220-yard dashes. They 
are the leading sprinters in this sec- 
tion of country and debates as to their 
relative ability have been prevalent. 

Navy and Maryland appear to be on 
a par for the lacrosse game, each hav- 
ing lost a number of Btars from last

A Little of Everything In Terp Sport Circles 

By \Y. H. (Bill) HOTTEL 

MARYLAND'S track team, which 
has just finished its regular 
season, won only two of the four dual 
meets, but there were lots of bright 
spots besides the two victories. And 
the two victims included Hopkins, 
beaten on Field Day. 71 ^ to 54^. 
and Richmond U. was the other. V. 
If. I.. Washington and Lee, Navy and 
Virginia were the conquerors. 

Earl Widmyer, soph sprinter; Bob 
Sonen, Bob Archer, Warren Evans, 
Ed Quinn. all whom run anvthing 
from the 100 to the 440, Cornelius 
nin, half miler, and Don Ashton, 
miler, were conspicuous performers. 

Widmyer won the 100 and 220 in all 
the dual meets and was second to 
Hardy of Cornell in the century in the 
Penn. relays. In fact, no one really 
knows who won at Penn, as Widmyer 
- first announced as the victor, and 
the change made to Hardy after a 
long debate.

WHEN" th i itten the lacrosse 

team was sailing into the Johns 
kins game in Baltimore on '• 
••an .-late with a 1 
triumph over Navy and a 7 to 2 vie- 
over Rutgers as the high lights. 
:ins. as usual, ha- more man-p 
er and experience than the Old Lir 
but despite this, Maryland has won 
three of the last five games and has 
■en up the ship by any nv 
In fact, despite that the odds have 
constantly been against them, the 
Old Liners have won 5 of the 12 
ties with the Blue Jays since they 
have been playing. Hopkir 
is due to a pair of wins in the Olvmpic 
play-off series or In 

regular season tilts they stand 5-all. 

AN hour before this was typed, the 
Old Line ball team blanked Wash- 
ington and Lee, 4 to 0, in a game at 
College Park. It was only the sixth 
game in 11 the Terps had been able 
to play, five being rained out. It was 
only the second win for a high class 
nine which has been hampered by 
rain and cold in its preparation. Da- 
vidson, a southpaw, checked the Gen- 
erals completely. And Washington 
and Lee has one of the best teams in 
the Southern Conference. Five more 
tilts were to follow the combat with 
the Generals. 

* * * 

LIKE the ball team, Maryland's 
tennis squad has suffered from 
the rain and the cold. It is the best 
racket-wielding bunch the Old Liners 
have had in years, but has captured 
only two of its first four matches. It 
has only three more tilts, hut bids 
fair to take them all and finish on the 
right side of the ledger.

than any freshman la- 
>e team in the history of t r 

at Maryland, the Old Line Cubs were 
parading an unbeaten path as this was 
penned. There are several on the 
squad who should step right into Var- 
sity shoes next spring. 

Late Varsity events listed at Col- 
lege Park are : Baseball — May 22, 
Western Maryland; May 24-Washing-

Probably the most deserving alumni 
of an institution are those w r ho have 
Mated their fiftieth anniversary 
of graduation. To properly recognize 
these individuals, the association is 
endeavoring to form a Fifty-Year 
Club, and each year present the new 
members to the association on Alumni 

Those eligible are all former stud- 
ents whi has celebrated their 
fiftieth anniversary . 

The initial members of the club, to 

the best of our records, would be as 
follows: E. S. Walker, '71; H. M. 
Davis, '74; P. C. Norwood, '74; J. B. 
Gray. '75; J. P. B. Hyde, '75; Cannon 
Fletcher, '75; T. H. Thomas, '76; E. 
O. Emack, '77; W. B. Thomas, '78, 
and Robert Lee Porter, '82. 

It is hoped that many of these will 
be present for Alumni Day, June 3.

Senior Alumni News 


Formal — $1.50 Per Person — 7 P. M. 

Thursday, June first, will be the 
closing day of examinations for the 
Senior Class of 1933, and they have 
arranged to have a banquet as a fare- 
well party before becoming scattered 
in the open world. With a desire to 
become good alumni the class of '33 
has asked Senator Millard E. Tydings, 
'10, president of the Alumni Associa- 
tion and himself a most enthusiastic 
alumnus, to be the principal speaker. 

At the request of the Senior Class 
the Alumni Association will join them 
in giving the banquet. All members 
of the association are cordially invited 
to attend at the per capita cost of $1.- 
50 per person. Reservations, however, 
will have to be made in advance 
through the alumni office not later 
than May 29. Checks must accom- 
pany your request. 

Talented entertainment has been 
engaged and the affair should be the 
outstanding event of commencement 
week. Make your reservations early, 
as tickets are limited. 

# * * * ■-:- 


The News wishes to make a cor- 
rection for an error made in the last 
issue. In the article about Rear-Ad- 
miral Rossiter, a sentence read "that 
he was made execution officer," it 
should have read "that he was made 
executive officer." 


Usually the most outstanding re- 
union of all classes is the fiftieth and 
twenty-fifth anniversaries. The two 
classes scheduled for this year are 
1883 and 1908. In the class of '83 
R. B. B. Chew and E. E. Rapley, of 
Washington, D. C, and R. L. Portner, 
of Baltimore, are the surviving mem- 
bers. In the class of '08 Charles Syl- 
vester is chairman of the Reunion 

Several other classes will be in the 
limelight. The thirty-year reunion 
of '03 is not to be out-done. 

E. P. Walls, president, indicates that 
many members will be present. 

Other classes which hope to have 
many present are: '88, '93, '98, '13, 
'18, '23 and '28. Special efforts are 
being made to have these classes well 
represented. Each member of the 
class is asked to communicate with the 
other members urging them to attend 

The class of '92, which has won two 
places on the cup for the highest per- 
centage of members present on Alumni 
day, will not be deprived of this honor 
if possible. Those members who have 
been present for the past two years 
say they will be here again. F. W. 
Besley is president of the class. 


It has been felt advisable that owing 
to the increasing number of women 
graduates, they should be given more 
representation on the Alumni Board. 
In order to make this possible it will 
be necessai - y T to increase the size of the 
board by electing some members at 
large, as all schools are now represent- 
ed. It is, therefore, proposed that the 
Alumni Board be increased from five 
to seven members, by electing one 
woman graduate and one man grad- 
uate at large. There wall then be two 
women and five men on the Board. 

The constitutional amendment will 
be presented at the annual meeting of 
the Alumni Association June 3.
